A Special Relationship

My co-worker, Mary, popped into my office during her break yesterday and we had a little chat, in which she mentioned that her cousin had been visiting from America last week, in the company of a Trump-voting friend whom Mary and her family had never met before. We had a bit of a snicker over the way the conversation had developed around the dinner table - apparently, it took until the cheese course for the Trumpette to bluster that they'd voted as a protest against the establishment and for the common man blah blah blah, much like the Brexiteers who failed to spot how much worse off the common man (and especially woman) is going to be once they've been stripped of their EU citizenship but hey, we can buy our Cheddar in the pounds and ounces that no one under the age of 40 knows how to use now, can't we? And then Mary said how her Democrat-voting cousin had showed her 'this really brilliant meme about Brexit and Trump, which was the outlines of -
